Ruby Mazur

Over the past 45 years, Ruby Mazur's innovative & influential  artistry has been displayed in galleries around the globe. At the age of  21, Brooklyn born Mazur was hired as Art Director of Paramount Records,  and within that first year he received a Grammy award nomination for  his design on the "CrowFoot" album cover. It was at this time that the  music industry executives began to take notice of Mazur's artistic  genius. In 1971, just two years into his career, Ruby opened his own  creative design agency in New York, Los Angeles and London, working with  top record companies including EMI, Warner Brothers, Atlantic,  Paramount, MCA, Pye and ABC. ABC Records eventually bought Mazur's  studio and brought Mazur in as Creative Director. Mazur has created some  amazing graphics but his most famous creation was the “Mouth &  Tongue” designed for The Rolling Stones  originally used on the  “Tumbling Dice” record sleeve. His outrageous and trend setting designs  have graced over 3,000 various album covers for the likes of Elton John,  Billy Joel, Ray Charles, Sarah Vaughn, Van Morrison, Jim Croce Jimmy  Buffett, and B.B. King in addition to such movie sound tracks as "Love  Story", "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory", "Malcolm X" and "Lenny  Bruce". These days Ruby lives on Maui, Hawaii ... just painting,  painting, painting.
